    Even if he doesn't. Tilman had him as a lame duck all year.

    Let D'Antoni go - do not sign him. Now we know what Mike can deliver and it's not enough.

    These are the characteristics needed in the next coach:
    - influence over players' late game execution
    - presence in-game by calling momentum preventing timeouts
    - defense first culture; the offense seems to drive itself
    - flexibility/adaptability/creativity with playoff game strategy: actually implement a counter-move in-series
    - be friends with James (how do I word this one?); actually use Harden's genius IQ and range of skill
    - coach the role players to be game-situationally aware and versed on expectations to deliver on

    Edit: adding to the list
    - influence players to not pull a bubbleDHouse
    - build Dog mentality - no quitting
    - build/have established positive relationships with NBA refs
    -

    That last bullet...I think you mean actually play and develop your role players.

    Love MDA. Great guy. Successful coach. Should have won a chip in 2018.

    ....but it’s time. A second round exit will ensure that. I think everyone knows that at this point.

    I mean for them to do whatever to not turn decent/smart players into complete boneheads.
